As I've always said, you can't really say anything bad about Charlotte. You can't really say anything good either. It's just kind of there.

It's a nice, non-descript, large city which is good to raise a family in, but will never win any "best of" awards.

I disagree. The Superbowl is without a doubt a "best of" award.

Knoxville sucks but Nashville is a pretty damn cool place.

Lived in Charlotte for 18 years. It's a GREAT place to raise a family. Other than that, it has next to no value other than banking and sports. There are dozens of other cities that are more exciting than Charlotte.

Charlotte is getting there culture wise. I agree with del. Charlotte is that solid 8th grade geology teacher. cool enough to make rocks interesting, not cool enough to smoke a joint with at a party.

what i do love about Charlotte is its just far enough away from the mountains and the beach that when you reach either destination, you appreciate both.

my kids have no idea how far this city has come. local breweries are making great strides.

i have been trying to flex some muscle with the power brokers for sports to bring the X games to Charlotte. shhh. keep that on the DL.

agreed. When compared to Knoxville or Columbia, Charlotte seems great. But in reality it is a pretty ho hum city. Not bad or good - just there.

Its far from being as bad as, say, Cincinnati or as good as good as, say, Seattle.

I disagree with Charlotte being an "average" city. I've been to many cities and in terms of overall niceness, Charlotte is the best I've ever seen. I might be a little opinionated, but still. Is it because some of you guys have lived here for so long, or am I so accustomed to seeing poo in Knoxville that I don't know what I'm talking about?

Much like college, where you live and what you get out of it is usually all up to the individual.
